Meanjin/Brisbane alt-pop outfit Syrup have made their return with their new banger, Kaleidoscope. The duo have also announced the release of their sophomore EP, Post Television, set to arrive this May.

Built atop a funky bass line and nostalgic keys, the song pivots away from the duos established early 2000s electro-pop, instead exploring a 70's inspired sonic realm. Vocalist Henry Anderson entrancing vocals simmer above, with the track arriving alongside an official visual directed by Callum Ellett.

Speaking of the track, Harry Pratt shares: "Kaleidoscope was the quickest song of all to take shape. I wrote the bones of the song (chords, top-line and basic structure) and sent it off to Henry for him to add his parts. For Syrup, musically something is complete when we both agree it is great. We both have to agree something is sick for it to come out. I was convinced we had something great from the beginning but I think it really clicked when Henry wrote the chorus bass line. We both felt as though we were treading on interesting and imaginative musical ground.'

Made up of Pratt and Anderson, Syrup released their debut EP, The Sponge, in 2019. The release saw the duo sell-out two headline shows and support the likes of Slum Sociable, Miami Horror and Jaguar Jonze. With a string of single releases since, Syrup are gearing up for the release of their sophomore EP, Post Television, co-produced and mixed by Malcolm Besley (Northeast Party House).
